Internet of Things (IoT) is transforming the agricultural field and proving to be a boon to farmers by helping them in solving various issues by combining their practices with advanced technologies and equipment. Simplifying complex issues, sensors can be placed across farm locality and farming machineries in order to enable farmers to gain an abundance of insightful data, such as the soil temperature and health, the amount of fertilizer used, the water holding capacity of the soil based on which a graph can be plotted, the pH of the soil which will further help us analyse many factors influencing behaviour of the soil and which in-turn will help us conclude the status of the soil. Our work here aims to achieve the result by placing remotely monitored sensor station at the farm. This station measures various soil and weather parameters from its sensors and sends this data through RF module to a central hub station. At central hub, the data received is uploaded to the cloud through internet. Through this smart farming system, agriculturist can keep a track on accurate real-time field data and form valid decisions regarding appropriate use of pesticides and fertilizers, measure crop health and other analytic informative to increase gross yield. A questionnaire is prepared with an aim of collecting prerequisite data so that it further helps us to give precise output of the procedure and to put up a detailed summary. We hope that the entire series of observations can help us find apt solutions which can make difference and take us towards increase in productivity in a sustainable manner.
